According to media reports in Uganda, former Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue will visit Uganda this week on a charity drive.
The former Ivory Coast and Gunners player is expected to be in Uganda for at least three weeks and will join another high profile player Ibrahima Sonko, a Senegalese who formerly played at Reading and Portsmouth.
Kawowo Sports report that Eboue’s visit was confirmed by Bungabet director and businessman Prosper Tuhaise.
“We expect Emmanuel Eboue in Uganda on Thursday morning. He will join Ibrahima Sonko who arrived last week as they do charity,” said Tuhaise.
Meanwhile, the two players are set to visit a number of organisations for charity as well as football academies and clubs to encourage young players to progress from the grass roots to a professional level.
The two players are also expected to be part of the team on state-owned UBC TV during the on-going 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign in Russia.
Another former English Premiership player Eric Djemba Djemba, who represented Manchester United and Cameroon, will also arrive in the country during the week.
